Cathy M. Grigsby

is a multi-media artist who has taught elementary school art for thirty years. She was recently named the 2013 Maine Art Education Association’s “Elementary Art Educator of the Year.” Grigsby is a believer that inside everyone is either the ability to create or appreciate art. Painting and fabric have been common threads in her work. Her fabric pieces are done by a process that disperses dye on paper, which is then cut into collages and printed using a dry mount press on polyester fabric. Sometimes she brings her experience as a quilter into these pieces by adding stitching and embellishment. Cathy is also a pastel artist who loves to paint outdoors. She tries to capture the reverence and awe she feels about the beauty that surrounds her in Maine.

who's life and art have been nourished and inspired by time in wild places, works to express reverence for the mystery and beauty of the places he loves. The deep silence and deep peace of wild places are at the center of Rod’s work. “In my art, I try to flow, to capture the essence and spirit of that great flowing life, of struggle and silence and peace. I try to express the spirit and essence rather than the details which often distract.” He founded Heron Dance, an art and literary publication, in early 1995.
